This first photo is of my completed project for January, my Whig Rose quilt. I've been working on it off and on for almost 2 1/2 years. It is all hand appliqued and hand quilted. It was a project I chose to do to help get me used to (ie not afraid of) hand applique. It worked! I actually don't mind doing hand applique at all now! I finished this project today, even though it was my January project. But finished is finished, by golly!
The lovely triangle you see here is Dear Jane triangle T7 called Norway's Fjord. Let me tell you, this thing gave me fits(as is evidenced by the diamond teetering at the top)! My sister, Betsy who you can see over at Quiltedobsession.blogspot.com, (can someone please tell me how to make that link?) came to my house for the weekend with her youngest daughter and her son. Betsy is also doing a Dear Jane quilt and actually is almost done with all the center blocks. We had a good time and managed to work on this triangle together. It was a struggle for both of us. I kept sneaking into the sewing room to try to get mine done before her, but she always caught on and ended up easily beating me to the punch. Her's looks fantastic!
I also finished a block for the week, which I'll share later. I've prepped a triangle and block for this coming week and hope to get more than one each done this week. That's it for me for tonight! Happy stitching!
"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."
